Watertots - Teaching Your Tots To Swim

Watertots

Classes

 

Watertots is a unique swim school which covers all ages and abilities from 4 months to 12 year old children . It is divided into three areas:

Group Swimming Classes
Interactive classes for 4 month to 6 year old kids together with their carer or parent in the group. They take place at Robinson Centre (Mondays), Campbell College (Saturdays & Sundays) and Victoria College (Sundays).

Watertots combines well organised lesson plans with a syllabus set to a childs pace to create a fun, safe and natural learning environment in the pool. Games, toys, songs, laughter and activities are used to help develop trust, confidence, endurance and independence.

Private Lessons
Available for children between 3 and 10 years old. Private Lessons take place at all our venues (excluding Mondays at Robinson Centre) and form a half hour session with two or three children of equal ability and one instructor. They take place on:

  • Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday & Saturdays (Methodist College)
  • Friday, Saturdays and Sundays (Victoria College)
  • Saturdays and Sundays (Campbell College)

The Cheetah Club
This is a 45 minute swimming session on a Friday evening for intermediate/advanced swimmers. It focuses on stamina whilst continually correcting stroke techniques and also teaches other important swimming skills such as diving and life saving.

CLASS ACTIVITIES

Baby Group Class

A Baby Class In ActionThis class is for babies from 4 months to 9 months. In this class we focus on developing water confidence and basic swimming skills in a fun way. We work on water safety skills, developing hand-eye co-ordination, strength and stamina using exercises which include underwater swimming. Babies feel extremely relaxed in the water and underwater swimming feels very natural to them. Babies progress to work on breathing, jumping, diving, holding the side, kicking and swimming unaided.


1 – 2 Years Group Class

A 1-2 Years Class In ActionThis class is for children from 1 ? 2 years of age. Basic skills such as body position, kicking, arm movement and becoming independent in the water are key stages of learning in this class. Action packed with toy animals, ducks, balls and lots more the children have a fantastic time singing and splashing whilst learning valuable skills to teach them to swim. Water safety is very important at Watertots and vital to learn. Exercises are incorporated into each class to teach the kids to be safe whilst swimming.


2 – 3 Years Group Class

A 2-3 Years Class In ActionThis class is for children from 2 – 3 years of age. This is a fantastic swimming stage for kids where they learn quickly and love every minute of learning through structured play. Jumping to save action man or Barbie, chin ball, diving for treasure, obstacle courses, woggle and float work are all only a part of the fun filled classes to bring the kids to the stage where they can swim unaided. Exercises to build water confidence and water safety skills are part of the session.


3 – 5 Years Group Class

A 3-5 Years Class In ActionThis class is for children from 3 – 6 years of age. In this class we work on building water confidence, body position, leg kick and arm movement so we can encourage the kids to swim unaided. The children are so busy having fun with snorkels, rescuing barbies and action men, doing obstacle courses, diving for treasure etc. that they do not realise that they are learning all the skills to enable them to swim unaided. Jumping, diving, learning to breathe and water safety skills are all areas we focus on, using fun and laughter as the best learning tool available.


Private Lessons

A Private Class In ActionThis lessons are for children from 3 – 10 years of age. During these classes the children are in a group of two ? three children (of the same ability) with one of our experienced instructors in the water with them. The classes are intensive but lots of fun giving the kids the confidence they need to learn to swim, developing their technique to learn all four strokes.
